it started off pretty interesting, but there was way too much about livestock in there. and the medication part was not thorough enough to be a real resource, but way too much for just a casual reader. i don't think it was really what i was expecting. Read full review

It was ok. Her discussion of the cattle was interesting, but I felt like she was talking too fast, and talking at me, rather than engaging me in her story....which makes sense since she is autistic. It produced a good discussion within our book group. Read full review
